, work on the environmental issues and energy issues and all the things i stand for. he was there in 2003 when i ran in the recall. he was 2005 for the special election, 2006 for the reelecti reelection and when we tried to pass environmental legislation to reduce greenhouse gas. he was very supportive in every step of the way so i jumped in and helped him right from the beginning. >> if you had been president four years ago, instead of barack obama, things have been different, you could have been if you had been born here. who knows. if you had been, do you honestly think you could have done any better than barack obama has done, inheriting such a huge financial mess? is the reality that whoever took over was going to be pretty much where he is now? what do you think? >> we maybe would have done things a little differently, but i can guarantee you that the president is doing everything that he can to solve the problems. i cannot imagine that president obama is sitting there and saying to himself, let me not fix this or let me have this fail. there's no such thing. i think that when you s

on the stump. energy independence, education, trade agreements, cutting the deficit and help for small businesses. the website, nextnewdeal, discovered this five-point plan, well, has been pushed before. by senator john mccain when he accepted the republican nomination four years ago. the five points were in a different order, but in the speech, exactly the same thing. there's really no real difference. four years earlier, here it is, an almost identical five-point plan was offered by president george w. bush when he was accepting the republican nomination for re-election. now, the five points were in a different order in this speech, in the actual speech. small businesses were mentioned twice. you get the picture in all of this. bush also repeatedly mentioned no child left behind even though it wasn't one of the five points. we need to see president obama dismantle romney as more of the same and dismantle these romney lies. here's the president in wisconsin today. >> whoever it was that was on stage last night doesn't want to be held accountable for what the real mitt romney's been sa

or into the camera. the rest of it was a waste of time and of energy and made him look, i think, insufficiently interested in the moment. we say, in acting we say we have to find ourselves in the moment. and he was not in the moment. and interestingly enough, mitt romney, whom i accused in my first article i wrote about this "how to act human" after unable to relate to the public, was in the moment. he found himself in the moment. ever since i wrote that article i've been looking for the real romney. i finally decided maybe the real romney was that boss that tells lame jokes at which we're obliged to laugh at peril of our jobs. that wasn't the person who showed up last night. >> no. >> not at all. >> he reminded me of the way actors, like russell crowe, seemed like a regular guy from the street corner, a regular guy, not a college type of guy. when you see him in the movies he's playing the master commander and gladiator, big, a big presence, a grand being. romney seems to transvigor himself that way last night. >> what he did was remarkable. think about it for a moment, chris. he walked out on

four years, in terms of our education system, developing american energy or making sure we're closing loopholes for companies that are shipping jobs overseas or focusing on companies creating jobs here in the united states, or closing our deficit in a balanced way, all those things are designed to make sure that the american people, their genius, their grit, their determination is channelled and they have an opportunity to succeed. and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is doing a fair share and playing by the same rules. you know, four years ago i said that i'm not a perfect man and i wouldn't be a perfect president and that's probably a promise that governor romney thinks i've kept. but i also promised that i would fight every single day on behalf of the american people, the middle class and all those who are striving to get into the middle class. i've kept that promise and if you vote for me, i promise i'll fight just as hard in the second term. >> governor romney? >> thank you jim, mr. president and thank you for tuning in this evening. this is an important election an
